this week, president obama beat former massachusetts governor mitt romney in the 2012 election. now the president invokes the name of his defeated gop rival to defend health care reform. in just a moment, governor romney joins me for an exclusive interview. and president obama's approval rating is at an all-time low. obamacare is at a rough start. more u.s. spy revelations have rocked even our closest allies. and did the president consider replacing vice president joe biden with then-secretary of state hillary clinton? that's according to a bombshell in a new book "double down, game changing 2012." bob wood card, katty kay, david axelrod, bill kristol. i'm david gregory in washington. >>> and good sunday morning. the killing of a tsa agent at los angeles international airport is raising questions about the motives of the 23-year-old suspect, and also airport security. do tsa agents need to be armed? our justice correspondent pete williams will be here in a little while to give us an update and fresh report on all of that. but first, the obama care debate. the healthcare.gov was actu
, based on tearing down and distorting mitt romney's record. >> amazing to hear from you today. >> but it worked. >> well, it did, and there's so much more to continue to discuss with regard to this rollout. >> thank you very much. >>> pressure growing on the obama administration to let congress hear testimony from the survivors of the terrorist attacks in benghazi. >>> lindsey graham vowing that until that happens, until he hears from them, he's going to block all of president obama's executive branch nominees. u.s. ambassador chris stevens, foreign service officers sean smith and tyrone woods, killed in the attack. >> the state department picked a team to look into what happened in benghazi. they interviewed the survivors to tell us as members of congress who have to explain to the families are they being straight and honest with you? it's not too over the top. i shouldn't have to do this. i shouldn't have to make these kind of threats. they should provide in a responsible way those who live through benghazi to be interviewed separate and apart from the obama administration,
a better way. >> romney versus obama, been there, done that, or maybe not? have you heard the one about vice president clinton or vice president christie in our political panel a new read on a book revealing backstage imfreezing in the 2012 campaign. this is "state of the union." >>> good morning from washington, i'm candy crowley. we will speak with senator kelly ayotte in a moment. >>> first, authorities have charged the man who opened fire at l.a.x. airport with two felonies including the murder of a federal officer. witnesses say the gunman, 23-year-old paul anthony ciancia, killed 39-year-old gerardo hernandez. the first tsa officer killed in the line of duty in the agency's history. two additional agents were wounded. joining me from austin, texas, is the chairman of the house homeland security committee, michael mccall. congressman, thank you very much for joining us. i think in the aftermath of this, the question i hear most often is, why did he do this. what do you know about that? i know you've been able to see some of the notes he wrote. what do you think the motivation was h
plan. but he also praised his 2012 opponent mitt romney, who in 2006, as governor of massachusetts, signed that state's health care reform legislation into law. >> i've always believed that when he was governor here in massachusetts, he did the right thing on health care. if it was hard doing it just in one state, it's harder doing it in all 50 states. >> that is proving to be the case. and the 2012 republican presidential nominee, former governor mitt romney joins me exclusively this morning. governor, it's good to see you. thank you for being here. >> thanks, david. good to see you. >> why do you reject the compliment from president obama this week when he says obama care based on romney care and that's the right way to go? >> well, i think the president failed to learn the lessons that came from the experience in massachusetts. first of all, the massachusetts experience was a state-run plan. the right way to deal with health care reform is not to have a one size fits all plan that's imposed on all the states but recognizing the differences between different states and their popu
republican nominee for president mitt romney was critical of president obama's handling of the law. >> i think the key thing that the president is trying to get away from and that is he told people they could keep their insurance and that wasn't the truth. whether you like the model of obama care or not the fact the president sold it under a model is not true the. the only way he can rebuild credibility is work with republicans and democrats and rebuild a foundation. we got to have a president that can lead. right now he's not able to do so. >> as for the website government officials say healthercare.gov will go off line temporarily on a daily basis to fix its ongoing issues. >> robert gibbses i want to go back to something that was said before in the "the washington post." it's stunning that you have the biggest start up ever run by somebody that had never run a start up before or had business experience before. i mean, looking back, people are scratching their heads for years how did they make these mistakes. how did mistakes like this happen inside the west wing? >> i think that's a f
romney on "meet the press." >> i think the key thing that the president is trying to get away from, and that is that he told people they could keep their insurance and that was not the truth. and whether you like the model of obama care or not, the fact that the president sold it on a basis that was not true has undermined the foundation of his second term. i think it's rotting it away. >> that guy still has a collar. they're keeping up a vigilant effort to remind people, many private plans held by just 5% of americans were roan rotten to begin with. >> a majority of those folks will get better coverage at the same or oh less cost than they have today. and, you know, that's important. that is, you know, delivering on one of the promises of the affordable care act. >> the white house meanwhile is facing a new headache. over a memo published in the "washington post" showing that an outside adviser warned of major structural and personnel problems with the rollout back in may of 2010. harvard professor david cutler told the president's top economic advisers, quote, i do not believe th
>>> mitt romney disavows obama care. is it the same health care plan the former governor sold to massachusetts? i will talk to the architect of both plans in minutes. >>> the president's meeting with the leader of iraq. exactly what kind of military help is that country seeking from the u.s., and will it happen? >>> in office politics, down to its last days? i talked to cnbc's carl quintanilla about the problems with blackberry. >>> and how much money could this work of art fetch? it's in today's list of number ones. >>> hello, everyone. it's high noon here in the east, 9:00 a.m. out west. welcome to "weekends with alex witt." he's back with a whole lot to say. mitt romney on today's "meet the press," talking about the comparisons between romney care in massachusetts and obama care. >> and perhaps the most important lesson the president failed to learn was you have to tell the american people the truth. what when he told the american people you could keep your health insurance if you wanted to keep that plan, period, he said that time and again, he wasn't telling the truth. i
of massachusetts, willard mitt romney sat down to sign his first legislation of health care reform law. nothing like it existed in the country back then. but republican mitt romney and the late democratic senator ted kennedy and a bunch of other folks from the state worked very, very hard to craft a law that made universal coverage possible in the great state of massachusetts. governor romney signed that law publicly with a big grin on his face back in 2006. well, today, president obama returned to that very room to talk about his signature health care law, which is based on what massachusetts did that worked so well in that state. the president was introduced by mitt romney's successor in massachusetts, governor duval patrick, and both the president and his friend, governor patrick, talked about what has gone wrong or can go wrong, with health care in your state. they talked about what could go wrong in the initial rollout, what goes wrong and how that stuff can get fixed. >> but our launch seven years ago was not flawless. we asked an i.t. staffer who has been at our connecter since the begin
. >> you're fired up. >> we have a better way. >> romney versus obama. been there, done that or maybe not? have you heard the one about vice president clinton or chr christie. this is "state of the union". >>> good morning from washington. i'm candy crowley. attorneys charged the man that opened fire at lax with two felonies. the gunman, 23-year-old paul ciancia killed hernandez. two additional agents were wounded. joining me now from austin texas is the chairman of the house homeland committee michael mccaul. congressman, thank you for joining us. in the aftermath of this, the question i hear most often is -- >> thank you. >> -- why did he do this? do you know about that? i know you've been able to see some notes that he wrote. what do you think the motivation was here? >> i think mental illness, once again, kind of like the navy yard shooter that we saw. the suicide note that i read talks a lot about killing tsa agents, and if he said if i just kill one my mission is accomplished and unfortunately, he did do that the other day and the other thing he wanted to talk about is how easy it i
weigel, and peter sutterman. i'll start with mitt romney seizing on the president's promises this morning on "meet the press". listen to what he said. >> perhaps the most important lesson the president i think failed to learn was you have to tell the american people the truth. and when he told the american people you can keep your plan if you wanted to, period, he said that time and again, he wasn't telling the truth. >> but you on that point -- >> i think that fundamental dishonesty has really put in peril the whole foundation of his second term. >> goldie, what is your take? >> i think that mitt romney and his wagon pulled in to the united states the last election and he was repuked by the voters not once, but twice. so the very notion that he has any credibility to talk about this affordable care act and the way that he has, i think is ludicrous. i think that the very same people who are the architects of his plan in massachusetts and the same people who were the architects of the affordable care act, so to say that they were different plans is ridiculous. >> dave, you've heard republi
serious falsification here. falsification. okay, romney's retort. >> president obama went to boston this week to claim that his plan will work as well for america as mitt romney's universal coverage did for massachusetts. here's mitt romney's response. quote. nothing has changed my view that a plan crafted to fit the unique circumstances of a single state should not be grafted on to the entire country. health reform is best crafted by state with bipartisan support and input from its employers as we did without raising taxes and by carefully phasing it in to avoid the type of disruption we are seeing nationally, unquote. romney, by the way, was not invited to attend the president's annual hall speech. defending obama care. >> question, who aside from mitt romney sees the current chaos as disruptive? >> i think romney was right on the mark there. when you have a bipartisan, when the governor is helping you out to implement the program and the government is part of the program, it works. the state that is receptive to government in healthcare. when you go to mississippi, of course, t
's just that he has a mitt romney feel for hem. he's sure san christie's praises yesterday on "meet the press." >> if you look at chris christie and say that's a very impressive guy with a great track record, with a demonstrated ability to work across the aisle, with support of labor and blue collar voters in new jersey, there's a long list of very capable people, but chris christie stands out as one of the very stronge likes in the republican party. >> here's an even bigger problem. even though christie has an air of aauthenticity, you don't run in a vacuum. if he runs in 2016, democrats will hit him for being against women, but republicans will hit him for giving money to planned parenthood. democrats will say his state was 45th in job creation. this sounds awfully familiar, larry. it's like take us back four years ago, we're at the exact same play. >> those of us who are republican under the republican wing have a problem with republicans like chris christie. good guy, i would certainly prefer him over any democrat that could be tossed up, but has he accepted the architecture of
the program was grilled on capitol hill. it is where mitt romney signed his state's health care reform in 2006. mitt will not be there today. keep a number out for this number, 123, the total number of people who enrolled in the commonwealth's case in its first month. as we know, enrollment later spiked and that's one message the president will push as an indicator that obama karen rollment might be off to a slow start but will pick up. joining him on the stage, deval patrick and state workers. kathleen sebelius answered questions from frustrated lawmakers on the botched rollout. what's next for the site and millions of canceled subpar plans. >> let me say directly to those americans, you deserve better. i apologize, i'm accountable to you to fixing the problems. >> is he keeping his promise to them? >> congresswoman, they can get health insurance. they must be offered new plans. >> some people like to drive a ford not a ferrari and some like to drink out of a red solo cup. >> hold me accountsable, i'm responsible. >> they never asked you to delay the launch date. >> they did not. frankly, i t
is weighing in on all of this, and governor mitt romney suggests the bumpy rollout of the affordable care act has put the president's legacy in jeopardy. >> the fact that a president sold it on the basis is that not true undermined the foundation of his second term. >> in minutes, governor romney sharing who he thinks could go all the way to the white house next time, and who he left off his list of 2016 republican stars. >>> also, you have heard the greatest claims about global warming. whether you believe it or think of it as a series, some scientists say they have the answer and know how to stop it skprbg the answer is on the right side of your screen. the former massachusetts governor and 2012 presidential nominee accused president obama of selling affordable care act to the american people as a lie. >> and the centerpiece of obama care over the last several years saying time and time again, fundamental to his plan was the right to keep their own insurance plan, and he knew that was not the case. >> he criticized the sloppy rollout of the exchanges online, and rejected the president's pra
yesterday, the same man that accused mitt romney of killing a woman, remember that? mitt romney killed my wife. remember that commercial? he was such a beast, a horrible human being. mitt romney killed my wife. barack obama believed that. >> obama did not claim that. the president did not say that. >> hillary clinton wasn't running against him in 2012. >> this commercial was put together by some sort of arm. >> somebody very close to barack obama. barack obama takes responsibility, the buck stops with barack obama. >> okay. >> barack obama and his campaign and people connected to his campaign and people closely associated with him in the past claimed that mitt romney killed a woman. >> okay. the story is bad enough, you don't need to do that. >> can i please make my point? i'm going to say it again, barack obama, his campaign, they all claimed in 2012. it was one of the most horrific claims that mitt romney killed a man's wife. >> i remember condemning the commercial as well. >> mika, i'm going to keep doing this, okay? so, in 2012, barack obama claimed that mitt romney killed a woman. ye
as the president stood in boston's historic faneuel hall where mitt romney signed into law the health care plan that became the prototype for obama care. >> there's no denying it. right now the web site is too slow. team people have gotten stuck. and i am not happy about it. and i take full responsibility for making sure it gets fixed asap. >> mr. obama argued romney care wasn't perfect at first, either. >> enrollment was extremely slow. within a month, only about 100 people had signed up. >> but there are also big ditcheses. former romney aides like ex-spokesman ryan williams are disgusted with the comparisons. >> what do you make of that? >> pathetic. >> romney had the late senator ted kennedy by his side, a bipartisan achievement the president wasn't able to match. >> president obama has not done a good job managing the process. he has not hired competent people to run this program. i think we're seeing the disastrous results of that right now. >> romney also rejected the comparison in a statement, saying "had president obama actually learned the lessons of massachusetts health care the inst
governor mitt romney and on "meet the press" this weekend where he accused the president of dishonesty and had this warning about the president's second term. >> i think the key thing that the president is trying to get away from and that is that he told people they could keep their insurance and that was not the truth. and whether you like the model of obama care or not, the fact that the president sold it on a basis that was not true has undermined the foundation of his second term. i think it's rotting it away. >> wait, there's a little bit more, "the washington post" obtaining an internal memo that shows an outside health adviser warning of trouble ahead for the rollout. telling the administration, quote, i do not believe the relevant members of the administration understand the president's vision or have the capability to carry it out. >> looking back, people are going to be scratching their heads for years going how did they make this mistake? so how do mistakes like this happen inside the west wing? >> well, look, i think that's a fairly devastating story. >> joining me now is d
with these individuals who clearly have mental health problems. mike brooks, thanks very much. >>> so why did the romney campaign refer to the new jersey governor, chris christie, as puffer fish? we're going to tell you the story behind the name. other revelations from a new political tell-all, stand by. we've got more. farmer: hello, i'm an idaho potato farmer. and our giant idaho potato truck is still missing. so my dog and i we're going to go find it. it's out there somewhere spreading the good word about idaho potatoes and raising money for meals on wheels. but we'd really like our truck back, so if you see it, let us know, would you? thanks. what? so when coverage really counts, count on nationwide insurance. because what's precious to you is precious to us. ♪ love, love is strange just another way we put members first. because we don't have shareholders. join the nation. ♪ baby... ♪ nationwide is on your side ♪ >>> a major new book blowing the lid off the behind-the-scenes in the presidential race. some in the obama campaign were muscling over the idea of replacing joe biden with hillary c
.m. for maintenance, they say, as troubleshooters work out the bugs. >>> also tonight, governor mitt romney with a sharp critique of the president, for promising americans they'd be able to keep their insurance. >> and whether you like the model of obama care or not, the fact that the president sold it on a basis that was not true has undermined the foundation of his second material. second term. i think it's rotting it away. >> i want to bring in abc news political director rick klein now. no one wants to relive that campaign of a year ago, but romney went further, saying the president wasn't telling the truth. the irony, the president was just in boston, wasn't he, thinking this would be welcoming territory for this health care plan. >> that's right. that's what makes this a biting critique. it is that context. just a few days ago, president obama went to romney's home state, the very place romney signed his own health care law, to argue that governor romney's plan worked. but romney's making clear, he will not let romney care be used to bail out obama care, whether or not he was the insp
romney hinted christie could be the party's savior in 2016. hillary clinton is calculating her own appearances with her first foray back into the campaign spotlight, stumping for close friend terry mcauliffe. but that new book, "double down" is spilling big-time campaign secrets from the 2012 election. two bombshells include dirt on chris christie's background that came up during the vice presidential vet and tpossibiliy they would swap joe biden for hillary clinton. two veteran campaign reporters say president obama saying i just don't know if i can do this, as he prepared for the second debate. let me bring in our company, editor in chief of reason magazine, matt welch and the "washington post" politics reporter, jackie kucinich. good morning. >> good morning. >> let's start with chris christie because he's got an election he's almost sure to win tomorrow. he's looking to send a message but as also passed over to be the vice presidential nominee. let me play for you what mitt romney said on "meet the press." >> i know that the vetting people who went through that analysis and put
romney care also had a pretty rocky beginning. health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius finally takes her turn in the hot seat, grilled for hours about the obama care website. >> you deserve better. i apologize. i'm accountable for you for fixing these problems. >> and the national security agency pushing back against allegations that it penetrated google and yahoo! data centers while european you're pea a eur against u.s. claims that everybody spies. you're in the situation room. sebelius got a drilling today. president obama got out of town. he just gave a spirited defense of his health care law this boston where former rival mitt romney signed a very similar and successful massachusetts law less than a decade ago. our chief congressional correspondent dana bash is standing by on capitol hill, but let's begin our coverage with our chief white house correspondent jim acosta. the president said he's responsible for obama care's flaws, but he also said that romney care also had a slow start. >> reporter: that's right. as you said, the president traveled up to boston to ma
't think this model, would. >> listen, if the model doesn't work, the romney model, we're trying to implement the republican model and having problems doing it. i think people are going to find out over time exactly how this thing went so badly. but i also -- we live in the age of twitter. we shouldn't live at twitter speed all the time. we will eventually figure out who did what right and wrong. there's a nasty dangerous undercurrent here where people are now trying to challenge and build a case against the character of the president. there may be some flaws in the process here. there may have been judgment mistakes on the campaign trail. but this president is a straight shooting honest, hard working president who is engaged. we'll find out what went wrong. i'm looking forward to hearing his words today. i this i what you're going to hear from this president today is a president who is going to take responsibility. >> should he say i'm sorry? should he apologize? >> i this i kathleen sebelius did the apology part of. the president needs to do the accountability part. >> the i th
a general. >> ann colter. >> we're going to bring in chris christie. >> romney will be the nominee. >> the argument that senator wendy davis made in her filibuster in the texas state senate against a restrictive abortion bill carried the day in court when provisions of that law were found unconstitutional. one third of clinics were set to close their doors when the law would have gone into effect. one provision required doctors performing abortions to have admitting privileges of a hospital within 30 miles of that abortion facility. federal district judge wrote the admitting privileges provision of house bill 2 does not bear a rational relationship to the legitimate right of the state in preserving and promoting fetal life or a woman's health and in any event places a substantial obstacle in the path of a woman seeking an abortion of a non-viable fetus and is thus an undue burden to her. the judge struck down some of the law's restriks on the use of pills used to induce apportion. wendy davis issued this warning during her filibuster of the bill. >> i'd say if you vote for this bil
candidate mitt romney, as you might remember, signed the law seen as a model for the affordable care act. let's take you now to the president. >> it's good to be back in boston. it's good to be back in boston because one of america's best governors introduced me, de valuval patrick. [applause] it's good to see congressman bill keating here, give bill a big round of applause. [applause] i want to praise somebody who was not here. i just left him. he wears his heart on his sleeve. he loves this city so much, and it shows in what he's been doing for years now, one of america's best mayors, tom benita. and it's good to see all of you. you know, i was just at the airport, devall was kind enough to meet me with mayor benino, and he went back to work so he could wrap up before first pit pitch. i'm well aware that a president's visit is not the biggest thing going on in boston. i understand that. i tried to grow a beard, but michelle, she wasn't haling it. i am also old enough to remember a time when the red sox were not in the world series three times in ten years, but i know the chance to win
clintons very well. and counsellor to president clinton when he was in the white house. and for the romney campaign in 2012, she was interviewed in the book. okay. great to have both of you with us. i have to say, in the age of twitter, i'm impressed these guys could have all this stuff and have it be new and hold it. so kudos. the book also says, bill clinton referred to barack obama as luckier -- luckier than a dog with two of something i'm not going to say on national television. how strained is this relationship? >> i was wondering how you were going to do that. it is a family program. >> i speak southern. let me trans laxt president obama is indeed fortunate to have a comparatively hapless opponent, mr. romney. that's all that quote says. it is a compliment. i have to say -- >> that's impressive you public is that to a compliment. >> it says you're really lucky. any way. i'm a dog lover, a southerner, believe me that's a compliment. like the comment i like him in doses. as a former aide, these people, especially presidents, they ought to have at least a way to blow off some steam with
, mock debates, he and john kerry playing mitt romney. first session on saturday went okay. sunday night was a horrible experience. the president was like he was in the denver debate, lethargic, professorial, didn't seem like he was fighting for the job. at times peevish, nasty to governor kerry sitting in for mitt romney. they were panicked. that prep ended and you had a scene which we write about in double down, plouffe, axelrod, debate advisers staying up to well past midnight saying what do we do, what do we do? how can we turn this around? we can't do down this path. they did what they called an intervention with the president. four aides and the president alone meeting to try to find how to turn things around. in short in the scene the president said, as you said, i'm not sure i can do this. they did a couple of things, how he needed to change his state of mind about it. they gave him one-liners, debate on a page to try to just come up with anticipating the questions, coming up with one-liners to use in the debate, and the president resolved he was going to do it. they also gave hi
of the campaign actually happened on your show when bill clinton had this to say about mitt romney. >> the real issue ought to be what has governor romney advocated in the campaign that he will do as president? who has president obama and what does he propose to do? how do these things stack up against each other? that's the relevant thing. there is nothing in terms of getting up and going to the office and basically performing the essential functions of the office, a man that's been governor and had a sterling business career crosses the qualifications threshold. >> so here we have the former president of the united states, a democrat, praising mitt romney's business record, which the obama campaign was visibly trashing on the air, so it was a little counterproductive and in fact, apparently caught the attention from hillary clinton who suggested from her aids that bill couldn't go there anymore. >> also a couple bizarre insights into that relationship, one they played golf together but can't finish the 18 holes and when president obama walks off he saids to an aid reportedly that bill clinton
to the first weeks of romney care in massachusetts. >> reporter: now we know the federal healthcare website healthcare.gov . is sick, we know that. we've been reporting that for weeks. now let's go back to when it was launched. we're now getting an indication of how sick it actually was when it was first launched. this site is responsible for attracting people from 36 states to buy healthcare under the president's new law. at the end of the first day just six people we are now told had signed up for health air. just six. at the end of the afternoon on the second day which was october 2nd that number had risen to 100, and only 248 people had signed up by the end of the second day. this, according to the house of oversight of government reform committee who just released these figures. this is bad news for the government because they said b by 2014 they reckon to have 7 million people signed up. clearly there is a long way to go. there is precedence for this. do you remember mitt romney who ran against the president in 2012, well, romney cares will had a weak start. only 123 people had signed
